Lynn | 6 comments Read last year- probably written is the 2000s
Fiction- Woman photographer doing a story for a magazine on an island off the Eastern Coast of US maybe Mass.
Her husband and 4-5 year old daughter are on board a boat with his brother and girlfriend for the photo shoot.
She is covering the history of the island where a murder took place in the early 1900s.
Husband is a poet- brother's girlfriend has a big crush on him.
The historic murder is the main focus of the book.
Island is very difficult to live on because of winds all the time.
People who came to live there are fishermen and their wives
who are immigrants.


Historic murder- woman kills sister in law and frames a fisherman
Photographer's daughter drowns possibly because her husband and brother's girlfriend were fooling around and not watching the girl.
